When I open a new window my last used websites load. In the 'Options' section, I have it as 'Show My Home Page'. No matter how I change it, the websites still show up when I open a new window. Why does this happen?

Firefox opens the home pages in a new window, so you may have set multiple pages as the home page(s).

You can check the home page setting to see if multiple pages separated by a vertical bar (|) are present.

Note that this can happen if you click "Use Current Page(s)" to set the home page. To set a single page as the home page you can drag the globe/padlock to the toolbar Home button.

You can check the home page setting:

  • Tools > Options > General > Startup: Home page

Firefox supports multiple home pages separated by '|' (pipe) symbols.
